Mark Evan Jones helped to rescue Sean P. Little from burning, Bradshaw, Maryland, December 10, 1986. Sean, 15, was a passenger in a car which crashed and caught fire on an interstate highway. Jones, 27, draftsman, and his brother approached the scene and stopped. Jones ran to the burning car and leaned through its broken rear window twice in attempts to pull Sean out, but the blistering heat forced him to withdraw each time. Jones’s brother arrived, and together they reached through the window, pulled Sean out, and dragged him to safety moments before the car was engulfed in a sudden burst of flame. Jones required hospital treatment for burns to his face and right hand, and he recovered.
